Glen Moray 10 Year Old Chardonnay Finish Whisky
The Glen Moray distillery was founded by The Glen Moray Glenlivet Co. Ltd. in 1897, in a former brewery.The distillery is situated in a hollow on the bank of the River Lossie, to the west of Elgin, in the Speyside whisky region. The location was ideal, due to the high quality of the water there. It produced whisky until 1910, when it was closed. It briefly reopened in 1912, but was forced to close shortly after. It remained closed until 1920, when Glen Moray found itself in financial trouble, and the distillery was acquired by Macdonald & Muir. Production resumed in 1923, and for years, the distillery just quietly produced whisky. In 1958, the distillery was rebuilt, with the amount of stills doubling from two to four, and the malting floor was replaced with a Saladin box. In 1971, the stills were converted to use steam heating. 1976 marked the year where the first Glen Moray became available as single malt, though it was not heavily marketed as such. The Saladin box was decommissioned in 1978, marking the end of malting on the premises. Two old stills were replaced in 1992. In 1996 Macdonald & Muir Ltd changed names to Glenmorangie plc, and in 1999, following the example of Glenmorangie, Glen Moray starts experimenting with different wood finishes.
